Quote of the day

On one occasion, the military judge interrupted detailed defense counsel during individual voir dire and instructed the member to “[p]ut the Commandant’s speech completely out of [her] mind.”

United States v. Howell, No. 201200264 (N-M. Ct. Crim. App. May 22, 2014), slip op. at 24 n.2 (Ward, Sr. J., concurring in the result) (quoting voir dire in unlawful command influence case arising from Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. John F. Amos's 2012 "Heritage Brief" lecture). Editor's note: concentrate on not thinking about elephants.
